Parent educator Jody McVittie will talk about connecting with teenagers and preventing youth suicide Thursday, May 31, in the Bellingham High School Auditorium.
The free event is open to the community. It begins at 7 p.m. at 2020 Cornwall Ave.
McVittie will discuss how the teenage brain works, how to help youths know that they matter, the warning signs of suicide and who is most at risk.
Because of the subject matter, organizers said only students older than 12 should attend.
Bellingham Public Schools and Western Washington University’s Counseling, Health and Wellness Services are sponsoring the event.
